The research project: Architecture of the Future Low-Carbon, Resilient, Electrical Power System or Future of Architecture Network (FAN). 

As part of the New Zealand government’s Strategic Science Investment Fund on Advanced Energy Technology, we are investigating what the future electrical power system might look like.

The major research challenge is to determine the future architecture, topology and a transition pathway.
